Deadline reported that Spider-Man was out of the MCU following Disney’s purchase of Marvel, after they allegedly failed to reach an agreement with Sony over the use of the Spider-Man character.

A dispute that has taken place over the past few months among the top dogs of Disney and Sony has essentially removed Feige, and the future involvement of Marvel from the Spider-Man universe, sources told the publication.

According to the publication,  Disney had asked for a 50/50 co-financing agreement between the two studios on future Spider-Man films but Sony turned that initial offer down.

Sony came forward with a proposition to keep the arrangement similar to the terms that dictated the first two Spider-Man MCU films, meaning that Disney would only receive 5% of first dollar gross, but apparently Disney then further refused that deal.

Deadline also claims that Sony believes it will manage perfectly fine without Feige and the Marvel gang, despite the fact that his last few films for the franchise were some of the highest grossing blockbusters of all time.

According to Deadline, there is currently no comment from Marvel/Disney, Feige or Sony Pictures about the ‘axing’ of Spider-Man as we currently know it.

Tom has not commented on the situation yet, but his dad Dominic, said: “I know nothing about the impasse between Sony and Marvel. I have no inside track on such issues. But whatever is decided by the big suits at these big Hollywood studios – my hunch is that the show will continue,

“Too much at stake and too many dollars riding on it – and besides, everyone wants the same thing; namely, Spider-Man on large screens keeping people safe and entertained,

“And with Tom in the suit, for the time-being at least.”
